Tlaquepaque Arts and Crafts Village
Cinco de Mayo Celebration and The Great Sedona Chili Cook-Off
May 2nd, 2015
Three weekends from now, one of the most popular Sedona events will be taking place at Tlaquepaque Arts and Craft Village. Can you guess what it is? If you guessed the Cinco de Mayo Celebration at Tlaquepaque, you are right! On Saturday, May 2nd, the charming plazas, patios, and streets of Tlaquepaque will be dressed in a festive wash of color, music, and dancing in the spirit of old Mexico. Enjoy the festivities while cheering and whistling to the music of mariachi musicians, clapping to the steps of folklórico dancers and savoring the mouth-watering tastes of traditional Mexican foods at Tlaquepaque’s famed El Rincon Restaurante.
The Great Sedona Chili Cook-Off twill also be taking place in the village during the celebrations. Tasting is from 11:00 am until 4:00 pm in the Calle Independencia. Tickets for tastings are just $5 for kids and $15 for adults. Organized by the Rotary Club of Sedona, proceeds will benefit Polio-Plus-Rotary International’s project to eradicate polio worldwide. Winners will be selected for the People’s Choice Award and the Judge’s Award for best flavor, consistency, aroma, and appearance. There will also be a Beer Garden sponsored by Oak Creek Brewery & Grill.
This is one of our favorite events at Tlaquepaque and if you are a guest at the Inn of Sedona you will be able to hop on our Complimentary “About Town” Shuttle and catch a ride to and from the event! The weekend of this event is going to be a busy one in Sedona, we highly recommend making your hotel and tour reservations ahead of time.
